The Orange County Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT) is one of 29 level one teams within the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) capable of providing emergency medical care during and after a disaster, either natural, man made or other event and be self sustained for the first 72 hours. In addition to a Federal response, we have an agreement with our State to provide medical care during a disaster or other event.
DMATs are principally a community resource available to support local, regional and State requirements. However, as a National resource they can be Federalized to provide interstate aid.
The National Disaster Medical System is a cooperative asset-sharing program among Federal government agencies, state and local governments, and the private businesses and civilian volunteers to ensure resources are available to provide medical services following a disaster that overwhelms the local health care resources.
